Something about Mary.

Mary.

We all know her, the mother of Jesus. She’s probably the most well-known woman in the Bible throughout the world.

I was having a discussion with someone the other day about a conversation between Mary and a certain angel. You may have heard of him, his name is Gabriel. And you’ve probably heard the conversation before. If not, you can read it here.

Our discussion centered around Verse 37, which is quite popular:

“For with God, nothing will be impossible.”

As Christians, we reference this scripture quite often. It is mentioned in various ways throughout the Bible: the sheer ability of God is so overwhelming that we often operate in ways that contradict it. We place God in a box. We may acknowledge that He can do anything, yet often times we put a ‘but’ in there for good measure.

Personally, I’ve never doubted God’s ability in a general sense – in my nature, the question is never can God do this, but will He do it….and will He do it for me?

As Christmas is a few days away, my mind is on Mary. What was so special about her? I don’t think there was anything particularly special about her, except her humanity and willingness to be obedient. Her obedience cast her into a load of responsibility that changed the face of the world. And all she did was say yes.

How much can God work miracles in our lives, if only we will cast fear and doubt aside, and say yes? Can we also be impregnated with a remarkable destiny if only we believe?

“For with God, nothing will be impossible.”
